Ayers Rock – A Night at Field of Light

Field of Light art installation, and global phenomenon, by internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro, is coming to Australia for the first time. As part of Ayers Rock Resort’s commitment to arts and culture, it’s hosting the biggest Field of Light installation to date at the place that inspired it – Uluru.

Bruce Munro and his team will install more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres that will bloom as darkness falls over Australia’s spiritual heartland. Pathways will draw viewers into the installation, which will come to life under a sky brilliant with stars.

About the artist

Bruce Munro is noted for his immersive site-specific installations that employ light to evoke emotional response, often in an outdoor context and on a monumental scale. Born in London in 1959, Munro’s passion for light as a medium began in Australia. Munro visited Uluru in 1992 as he bid farewell the country he’d called home for eight years.

A Night at Field of Light

1 hour prior to sunset

A Night at Field of Light experience begins with a convenient hotel pick-up to the remote desert location with majestic views of Uluru. With Uluru as your backdrop enjoy canapés and chilled sparkling wine to an unforgettable sunset. As darkness falls and the coloured lights of the 50,000 glass spheres gently sparkle to life join your table of fellow travellers for a special three-course bush tucker inspired buffet. Your knowledgeable host will provide insights and background to the artist and light installation that awaits you. The music of a lone didgeridoo and a local Indigenous performance are also part of your evening experience.

You’re invited to immerse yourself in the Field of Light, its pathways glistening softly with rhythms of coloured light, beckoning you to explore.

  • The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed  in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.

  • We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
